At the start of Year 4, children are asked to think about remembrance - both in the context of WWI and II, and in terms of more personal and immediate memories - considering both how and why we remember significant people and events. Resources to support children in making connections between the texts can be found in the ‘pulling it all together’ pack, as can a suggested list of books also linked to the theme, which could be read as a class.

A suggested list of books for class reading, linked to the unit theme, is also included.
